5 Biggest Areas of Concern for the Packers Heading into Training Camp
USA TODAY Sports

When one reflects on the 2013 NFL season that the Green Bay Packers had, it was definitely a hills-and-valley type of year throughout the season. When it was all said and done, the team finished 8-7-1 and won the NFC North.

That was somewhat hard to fathom, as the Packers looked to be out of any playoff consideration after Week 13 when the Lions thrashed them on Thanksgiving, 40-10. At that point the Packers were 5-6-1. The Lions were 7-5 and looked to be the favorites to win the division.

But a funny thing happened. The Lions went 0-4 down the stretch, while the Packers won three of their last four games, including the Week 17 battle against the Bears in Chicago. That victory gave the Packers the division title.

The Packers started slow in their Wild Card Round game against the 49ers, but the team hung tough and played hard as San Francisco ended up winning on a last-second field goal at frigid Lambeau Field.

Bottom line, the Packers overcame a lot of adversity last season just to make it to the playoffs. There were also a number of other reasons why the team struggled at times as the season wore on as well.

In this slideshow, I'm going to list some of the areas of concern going into the 2014 season that may trouble Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy as training camp will open soon.
